|Methodust - The Numbing Victory (Independent)
The main body of the guitarwork is either speedy riffage or rather simple dark groove driven riffs and beats, like old school black metal. Death/black vox are at the helm, they work fine for this band. Intense blast beats can also be found in their composition. A few of the riffs seemed off or out of place, besides that it’s all right.
The quality of the recording may be a problem for some people as it really doesn’t sound that good because of its raw nature. It was a two-day recording process – and it sounds like it. It has that demo sound. Kind of hard to listen to at times, that’s how a number of demos go though. Cleaning up the recording would have given me a better impression of Methodust, but the way it is now, select parts I was shaking my head and cringing that theses guys need some help!
Though I was not impressed, this is not totally a lost cause. There are a few redeeming parts that could carry them to their next, and hopefully improved, release.
